Úna Gan a Gúna: Irish Women’s Oral History Collective

The Irish Women's Oral History Collective are a collection of scholars and feminist citizens seeking to gather and share Irish women's stories to capture a fuller history of our experiences.

Our mission is to ensure that the memories of Irish women from the 1930s onwards are heard and are recorded and kept as a part of Irish history and the histories of Irish people travelling out and across the world. 

The Irish Women's Oral History Collective have so far achieved:

  • Fifteen fabulous interviews with fifteen fabulous women gathered to date…

  • Ten interviews already deposited in the Birkbeck, University of London repository to ensure they are catalogued clearly and preserved for future interest and scholarship.

  • We are not doing face-to-face right now but lots of collaboration is happening online.

  • We have a Twitter account @UnaganagunaP where we follow and share news about oral history, Irish and Irish diaspora women.

  • We’ve joined NCVO and are setting up as a charity.
